The Spaniard’s flight to the top has been suspended since March. But authorities are exploring a way to end the campaign while the coronavirus pandemic continues.
La Liga returns from June 8
La Liga Santander will resume on June 8 after Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez gave the green light for the return of football. The Spaniard’s flight to the top has been suspended since March. But authorities are exploring a way to end the campaign while the coronavirus pandemic continues. Representatives of La Liga see Friday, June 12, as the date on which they want the league to return, and now they can move towards this goal. Sanchez said in his address to the nation on Saturday: “Spain has done what it needs and now new horizons are opening up for everyone. It’s time to restart many daily activities. From June 8, La Liga will return to football”. La Liga president Javier Tebas revealed earlier this week that he was “thrilled” with the prospect of a return match.
Everyone is very pleased with the decision
He stressed they could only go with permission from the health authorities. But the go-ahead Sanchez means that Spanish football will work again and again. Tabas expressed his joy after Sanchez said on Twitter: “We are very pleased with the conclusion; it is the result of the considerable work of La Liga clubs, players, and coaches”. But it is essential to observe sanitary precautions and respect the evolution of the pandemic, and we can’t lower our guard. “The Spanish teams have recently been allowed to return to training and are already working in groups of 10 this week. Although they must continue to adhere to social distance measures.
Most likely, the games will be held without supporters to minimize the risk of spreading the disease again – a Spanish development coach Luis Enrique is not thrilled. “Performing behind closed doors is sadder than dancing with your sister,” he said while interviewing. “You have to realize that football is a business. And it will help pass the time during the lockdown”. Barcelona sits on top of La Liga with a two-point lead over rivals Real Madrid, with 11 games left to play. At the other end, the bottom side Espanyol is six points away from safety while Leganes and Mallorca are climbing for a way out of the relegation zone.
